Tata Com to offer enterprises private access to Oracle Cloud
01 February 2018 | James Pearce
Tata Communications has partnered with Oracle to deliver private access to Oracle Cloud to enterprises from more than 150 countries.
The partnership means enterprises will be able to access Oracle Cloud Infrastructure through the FastConnect service using Tata’s IZO Private Connect product.
The combination means enterprises can bypass the public internet altogether in order to access data and applications using their WAN. IZO Private Connect provides 10Gbps connectivity to offer a “predictable and consistent end-user experience for bandwidth-intensive applications” according to Tata Com.
“As organisations become increasingly dependent on the cloud and the threat of cyber-attacks continues to grow, our customers need a network that gives them ubiquitous, secure access to data and applications,” said James Parker, chief revenue officer, Tata Communications.
“Our collaboration with Oracle is part of our mission to give our customers the connectivity they need to harness the power of the cloud to boost employee productivity, drive digital transformation and expand into new markets.”
Tata Com has global agreements with the likes of Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Office 365, Google Cloud Platform, Salesforce, Alibaba Cloud, and Oracle. IZO Private Connect utilises Ethernet connectivity to Tata Communications’ points of presence and across 110+ third party data centres globally.
The Oracle Cloud offers complete SaaS application suites for ERP, HCM and CX, plus database Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) from data centres throughout the Americas, Europe and Asia.
“Customers require seamless connectivity from their data centres and networks to Oracle Cloud for their most demanding workloads and applications,” said Don Johnson, Senior Vice President Product Development, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
“With the FastConnect service, customers can provision the dedicated and private connections they need today and easily scale with their growing business demands.”
